Australia — Pigs’ Tales: Official F‑111 Retirement Events

The retire­ment of the Roy­al Aus­tralian Air Force F‑111 fleet on 3 Decem­ber 2010 will mark a sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone in the his­to­ry of mil­i­tary avi­a­tion in Aus­tralia. We are delight­ed to be able to show­case and cel­e­brate the life and ser­vice of the F‑111 air­craft through Pigs’ Tales, the offi­cial F‑111 retire­ment cer­e­monies.

Pigs’ Tales will not only pro­vide a forum to com­mem­o­rate the his­to­ry of these amaz­ing air­craft, but will also pro­vide an avenue to hon­our all of the men and women who flew, main­tained and sup­port­ed the F‑111 dur­ing its ser­vice to the Roy­al Aus­tralian Air Force.

I do hope that you will be able join in the farewell to this icon of the Aus­tralian skies.

Air Mar­shal Mark Bin­skin, AO
Chief of Air Force
